So I just upgraded to 2.2 and for some reason many of my characters that are non-ASCII (smart quotes, acute-accented characters etc.) are all messed up after the db upgrade. Check it out here:
"à la mode. Condé Nast"
"Ã la mode. CondÃ© Nast"
It's not just a display encoding problem—they're like that inside the db itself.
Has anybody else experienced this? I imagine it'd be a nightmarish occurrence for anyone with a non-English blog! Any idea what can be done about it?
